The best tofu Tortilla Filling – VeGaN
Tofu Tortilla Filling – VeGaN
Who likes tortillas? Hands up (or actually comments down). I like tortillas a lot. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot 🙂 In the past I used to make the filling with minced chicken meat and then add a huge portion of cheddar on top. Yum 🙂 But today I think twice before I cook with some animal product. Thanks to my short VeGaN journey I discovered new ways of cooking my most favorite dishes. I experimented a lot with products which could replace the meat but still keep the full taste of the dishes.
This is how I actually figured out the way to this TOFU tortilla filling. Hopefully, it will match your taste buds the same ways as mine. And what you can expect from this VeGaN-friendly dish? An explosion of flavors and textures which will make you addicted to this dish 🙂 Just try it out. Ciao
The best Tofu Tortilla Filling – VeGaNRecipe by tasteisyoursCourse: Dinners, Lunches, Recipe book, VeGaN mealsCuisine: MexicanDifficulty: Easy
250g of hard tofu
2 teaspoons of smoked red paprika powder
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
Salt and black pepper
Fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
Colorful bell peppers (I used red, yellow and green), deseeded and chopped into medium sized pieces
Canned red beans
200g of canned corn
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1 onion, chopped
25g of tomato puree
Salt & pepper
- Firstly let’s prepare the “meat”. Preheat your oven to 200°C. Place your tofu in a bowl and break it down into smaller pieces. I break it down using my hands, but you can use a fork if you wish. Then add the smoked red paprika, garlic and onion powder and mix well. Now you can add 3-4 tablespoons of soy sauce and mix well. Heat up a bigger pan and roast the tofu without oil. Do not stir it and let it burn a bit. Once your tofu is crispy enough spread it evenly on your baking tray and put into the oven. Lower the heat to 150°C and bake for 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally so it doesn’t burn. At the end, your tofu should be crispy and look like this 🙂
- Meanwhile, your tofu is in the oven you can prepare the salsa: quarter your tomatoes and remove the seeds, then chop into small cubes and place into a bowl. Finely chop the shallots, pickled jalapenos and the coriander leaves. Add to the chopped tomatoes and mix well. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, juice from the 1/2 of lime, a drizzle of Tabasco and mix well. Season with a pinch of salt. In case you prefer fresher taste you can add some additional lime juice.
- Once your tofu is done heat up 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil in a bigger saucepan, add the onion and roast for 4-5 minutes or until slightly golden. Then add the garlic and roast for 1 minute. Now add the chopped bell peppers, stir well and roast for another 5-7 minutes. If you roast the peppers longer they will not be crunchy at the end. Now stir in the tomato puree and add the baked tofu. Mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes until all the ingredients combine. At the end add the corn, the beans, and the chopped coriander. Stir well, turn off the heat and serve. Enjoy 🙂
